Intrinsic geometry of the pulsar. With the rotation axis as polar axis, the magnetic poles are located at polar angles Θ1 and Θ2. The angular distance δ between the second magnetic pole and the point that is antipodal to the first magnetic pole gives the deviation from an ideal dipole field. Figure from Kraus et al. (1995).
